What does the Legislation say?
Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires that an organisation produce a written programme to safeguard:
- The safety and health of employees while they work
- The safety and health of other people who might be at the workplace, including customers, visitors and members of the public
The Safety Statement represents a commitment to the safety and health of employees and clients. It should state how the employer will ensure their safety and health and state the resources necessary to maintain and review safety and health laws and standards.
The Safety Statement should influence all work activities, including:
- The selection of competent people, equipment and materials
- The way work is done
- How goods and services are designed and provided
It is essential to write down the Safety Statement and put in place the arrangements needed to implement and monitor it. The Safety Statement must be made available to staff, and anyone else, showing that hazards have been identified and the risks assessed and eliminated or controlled.
Your Health and Safety statement should be reviewed and signed off annually and should be on display where employees and parents can view it.
